    SirRobin,

    It would be nice (for the folk's @ home) and responsible if you took the time to document what you've got there.

    Cool. Here are some I never go without for my Unattended XP Dvd. I am not saying they all are 100% documented to actually improve anything. But I have used these in a reg merge for maybe 3 years now, no problems. They get merged during install, so I don't know what happens if you use them after your system is up and running.

    Okay, but it would be better if you wrote some sort of description, gave a link.

    'EventID 4226: TCP/IP has reached the security limit imposed on the number of concurrent TCP connect attempts'
    Event ID 4226 Patcher

    lol, you would be correct I suppose. For the sake of having every know reg edit in one place that would indeed be grand. I will not unfortunately be doing that. I have way way too many reg tweaks to even think of that. Might I suggest if one really wants to get down to it that MSFN.org would be a very very good resource for reg tweak collections. Most I collect are designed to be implemented with a new install of XP, to make it behave the way I want. MSFN has a very intesive area for this type of thing, and many more qualified answers than I can hope to give.

    Still, a good reg tweak is sometimes worth it's weight in gold... or a few barrels of crude.

    Sul.

    I found that by disabling last access timestamp really screws up defrags :)
